2019 Fun Fly

Shots from the fun Fly

Even though we had to fly at an alternate site, we had a great crowd and had a good time at the Fun Fly. Helicopters, drones, combat planes and a paraglider. Lots of fun.

May 31st, June 1st & 2nd 2019 Annual Whirlybird Fun Fly

Antire Valley County Park, St, Louis Missouri, USA

Do not miss this one! Mark your calendar May 31st, June 1st & 2nd 2019. Good weather has been ordered and a great time promised to all. Open flying the whole weekend.  Hope to see you there!

Note 5/30/2019 Buder is currently flooded. It is official we have arranged to fly at our alternate location. Antire is located 6 miles west off of highway 44, exit 269. Due to the potential change in venue, we will need to limit flying to helicopters and drones only, no fixed wings aircraft will be allowed.

The St. Louis Whirlybirds R/C Helicopter Club would like to invite you to our 34th Annual R/C Helicopter Fun Fly held on May 31st, June 1nd & 2rd 2019 at the Antire County Park. There will be three days of open flying all registered pilots are eligible for door prizes. It is a great opportunity to meet other pilots and exchange setup and flying tips. Whether you are a novice or expert, there is a great time planned for all.  Charging station provided for batteries via a generator.

In addition to the fun fly STL FPV Racers will be having an exhibition. Due to the flooding at Buder we will not be having a race.

Since this is an AMA sanctioned event, you must have a current AMA card to register and fly. The landing fee is $20.

Antire Flying Field is a public, AMA governed field. It is open during the daylight hours (8:00am to dusk) for helicopters and quads . If you arrive earlier in the week, you can fly at Antire as long as you honor the AMA and local flying rules. AMA is required to fly at Antire and at the Fun Fly.

If you are coming in early and want to fly before the weekend, give us a call and one of the St. Louis Whirlybirds will be happy to be your host at Antire Park. Check out our Web page to see the pilots that are attending and for the latest Fun Fly information. Don’t wait… make your plans now. Hotel rooms sell out very quickly during the St. Louis summer.
